Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) used to be the job for young graduates taking a year out to travel and pay their way overseas.
Now more and more early retired and those considering their options after redundancy are looking to teach English and supplement their incomes.
Many English language schools in the UK are offering “taster” courses in teaching but it’s a waste of time to spend money on courses which are not recognised by British Council accredited schools if you want to work in the UK.
The CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) awarded by Cambridge ESOL together with the Cert TESOL awarded by Trinity College London are recognised worldwide. Concorde International school in Canterbury (an accredited Cambridge examination centre) have been offering the CELTA courses for more than 10 years.
"We screen all candidates very carefully, give them a free pre-course test and interview to check their suitability" said Course Director, Sandie Warren. "The four week course costs £989 + the examination fee so it is an important investment of time and money. Fortunately we have an excellent pass rate and can employ future teachers on our own courses here in the UK or help them find placements in reputable schools overseas".
